Gen8 Proliant - Fan Speed after NIC Install

Hi guys, I've just installed a HP NC364T Quad Nic card in both my Gen8 Proliants, and noticed the fan speed has went from 5% to 20%. Nothing's plugged into them yet.

 

Is this expected behaviour? And is there any way to reduce the fan speed...safely?

 

I have installed them, without having to install any driver as ESXi has picked them up however I'm wondering if the 'correct' driver is required or not..which could make a difference with the fan speed? Screenshots below show installed driver version, and recommended driver version respectively.
